Victoria and Chifundo had all the luck on April 9th this year, it was one of those blue sky days with no clouds whatsoever. I was on a mission to make the most of this, and hope the following shots show you what is possible if its sunny, and the bride and groom want to go on location to shoot some fun photos.

The day began at a fantastic bed and breakfast near the Maidens Barn, where Victoria, her mother and bridesmaids were staying and getting ready.

Victoria was ready, so I then headed over to the Our Lady Immaculate church, in Chelmsford, where I met with Chifundo and his twin brother.

Victoria arrived with her father in a vintage Wolsely Police Car.

One of the many great moments at this wedding, was when Chifundo’s family, who are originally from Malawi, spontaneously burst out into traditional song. I remember a great song when they signed the register, and another when they exited the church.

It was now time to head back to the High Easter area, to the Maidens Barn, but enroute I sourced a few locations to stop and take some amazing photos. First stop was the duck pond in Writtle, where the ducks were mostly sleeping and didn’t want fed.

Next stop…and on with the blue wellies.

And then we reached the Maidens Barn, where everyone had gathered outside to greet the Bridal Party, and blow bubbles at them while they danced into the courtyard.

The tree on the left is a Message Tree, for hanging notes on.

Inside the barn, a table was setup with a vintage typewriter for guests to leave messages.

There was also a very retro sweety table.

And a lot of cupcakes.

Still great weather in the evening.

Before the 1st dance, the families were invited to throw money at the bride and groom, seems like a good idea!

Then, an almost formal moment of the 1st dance…

Which then turned into a dance routine for the bridal party, which was great fun to watch.
